Keeping the environment safe

If you’re carrying out repairs on cars outside your home, please make sure you carry out car maintenance in an environmentally friendly way.

Pouring oil down a drain can cause significant environmental pollution and just a few litres of oil could seriously pollute a small lake. It’s also a criminal act that can be followed up by the Environmental Agency.

Your recycling centre will take your engine oil free of charge, and get rid of it safely.

For safety reasons, we’d recommended not carrying out oil changes on your car outside or around your home, to protect you and other customers from a fire risk.
